Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:30 AM PST Dec. 10, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of east central California and western Nevada,
including the following areas, the Lake Tahoe basin, Truckee
area, and the foothills west of Reno, Carson City, and Minden.

* Through this evening

* an atmospheric river will bring a burst of heavy precipitation
across the northern Sierra and Lake Tahoe basin from early this
morning through this afternoon with snow levels near and above
8000 feet.

* The greatest threat for flooding is near small creeks,
streams, and recently burned slopes such as the Little Valley
fire. Rock and mud slides are possible near steep terrain.

* A rapid rise of the Truckee River through Reno and Sparks is
likely this evening. However, the river is likely to remain
below flood stage.

* Difficult travel conditions due to heavy rain will impact
Interstate 80 from Verdi to Donner Summit, Highway 89 from
Truckee to South Lake Tahoe, and Highway 50 from South Lake
Tahoe to Echo Summit.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Small creeks and streams are the most susceptible to flooding.
Excessive rainfall may also generate rock and mud slides in steep
terrain. Persons living along small creeks and streams should
monitor the latest weather information at weather.Gov/Reno and be
prepared to take action should flooding occur.





Wind Advisory
Issued: 4:19 AM PST Dec. 10, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Wind Advisory in effect until noon PST today...

* timing: strong and gusty winds will continue through this
afternoon.

* Winds: south to southwest 15 to 30 mph with gusts 50 to 60
mph. Wind prone locations may see gusts up to 70 mph.

* Impacts: winds may cause travel difficulties especially for
high profile vehicles with the worst conditions expected
along the Highway 395 corridor. Winds will also cause
turbulence and wind shear for aviation.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Now is the time to secure loose outdoor items such as patio
furniture, Holiday decorations, and trash cans before winds
increase which could blow these items away. The best thing to do
is prepare ahead of time by making sure you have extra food and
water on hand, flashlights with spare batteries and/or candles in
the event of a power outage.
